        Broadside. Begins, Juxta. Crucem. Jesu. Stanti Ast. in Cruce. Ipsa ...

      Angelop[oli] [i.e, Puebla]: Petri de la Rosa Folio (38 cm; 15"). [1] p.. 1816 On 24 April 1816 Díaz de la Vega stood to defend his Bachelor degree and this letterpress broadside on silk is the official announcement of that. It is handsomely printed using several point sizes of roman and italic, with center justification in the top portion and full justification below. Degree defense broadsides were an important source of income for Colonial-era printers in Latin America and the printers offered "package deals" to the families of the graduate and post-graduate degree postulants; the packages were geared to the students' families economic means. Broadsides could be large (folio) or small (8vo), have an engraving or not, have a border of type ornaments or not, and be printed on standard paper or colored paper (usually blue); if one splurged, one could get the announcement printed, as here, on silk. The usual total number of copies printed for each candidate is unknown at this time, but is likely to have been only one or two dozen, and we also don't know if more than one silk copy was printed when that top option was in fact ordered. In extravagant cases, one can imagine one for the degree candidate, one for the parents, one for each godparent, etc.; still, such cases would probably have been few. Certainly, the printers would have been willing to rake in as much money as possible, on each happy occasion, and the richly beautiful silk mementos — doubtless proudly displayed for years going forward in homes or offices — would have been excellent ongoing advertisements. Equally clearly, however, the number of copies of all of the defense broadsides surviving is small, and the survival of those on silk is => very small. No copies of this broadside are traced via the usual bibliographies, nor via NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, KVK, CCILA, CCPB, or the OPACs of CONDUMEX, the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla, and the national libraries of Spain and Mexico. Blue-green silk with braided edges using gold and silver metallic thread, and with blue tassels incorporating silver thread and fittings attached on all corners. Minimal wear and => stunningly attractive.

        The Law of Baron and Femme; Of Parent and Child; Of Guardian and Ward.

      1816. First Edition of Reeve's Baron and Femme, The First American Treatise on Family Law Reeve, Tapping [1744-1823]. The Law of Baron and Femme; Of Parent and Child; Of Guardian and Ward; Of Master and Servant; And of the Powers of Courts of Chancery. With an Essay on the Terms, Heir, Heirs, and Heirs of the Body. New Haven: Printed by Oliver Steele, 1816. [iv], 494, [11] pp. Octavo (5-1/2" x 9-1/4"). Contemporary calf, blind fillets to boards, lettering piece and blind fillets to spine. Light rubbing to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities, a few scuffs and nicks, faint creases to spine, corners bumped and somewhat worn, front hinge cracked, rear joint and hinge starting, early owner bookplates (of J.T. Terry and Mark H. Sibley) to front pastedown. Light browning to text, light foxing to a few leaves, lower corner lacking from p. 225-226 with no loss to text, small chip to front free endpaper. A nice copy of an important work. * First edition. In 1782 Reeve founded the first American law school in Litchfield, Connecticut. The first American treatise on family law, Reeve's Law of Baron and Femme is a restatement of Blackstone's Commentaries, Book I, Chapters XIV-XVII. It rejects some of the fundamental doctrines of the common law, most notably coverture. As Blackstone puts it, "the husband and wife are one person in law; that is, the very being or legal existence of the woman is suspended during marriage." Reeve says the opposite. Also a prescriptive work, Baron and Femme aimed to liberalize the American law of domestic relations, arguing, for example, that married women were permitted to make wills, a point contradicted by the contemporary statute and case law of Connecticut and several other states. Terry and Sibley were lawyers who practiced in Ontario County, New York. The most prominent was Sibley [1796-1852], a Canandaigua lawyer and judge who served in the state assembly, state senate and U.S. House of Representatives.

        L'hydrothérapeutique plumériane ou méthode de guarir les maladies par l'usage des eaux de Plumière

      1816 - de (2), VII, (1), 138 et (1) , 1816, in-4, de (2), VII, (1), 138 et (1) pages, demi-chagrin vert postérieur, plat de percaline verte, dos à 5 nerfs, Copie manuscrite de 1816 d'un manuscrit de 1611 aujourd'hui conservé à la Bibliothèque municipale de Strasbourg (Ms.0.416). François Thybourel (dont on ignore les dates de naissance et de mort, mais qui vécut durant la première moitié du XVIIe siècle), naquit à Crozes dans les Vosges et fut professeur de Mathématique et de Chirurgie à l'Université de Pont-à-Mousson. Le manuscrit de 1611 fut rédigé par l'auteur sur "commandement de son Altesse [Monseigneur Errie de lorraine, Évêque et comte de Verdun, à qui est dédié l'ouvrage], par l'advis de Monsieur de Champey". Il se divise en deux parties : une première traite des feux souterrains, le second des qualités, usages et fonctions thérapeutiques des eaux de Plumière. La présente copie manuscrite, d'une parfaite réalisation aurait probablement dû servir à l'édition d'un "fac-dissimile" du manuscrit original, au vue de sa composition générale et de la manière dont elle suit, nous semble-t-il, les moindres particularités (spécificités orthographiques de Thybourel et les notes en manchette, par exemple) sans ajouter de discours paratextuel ou critique. La page de titre manuscrit, indique "Réimprimé à [blanc] sur le manuscrit original chez [blanc] par J.A. doct. méd, à Plombières". Nous pouvons déduire de ses initiales qu'il s'agit de Jaquot Amé, qui soutint une thèse "sur les eaux minérales, froides et thermales de Plombières" en 1813 à l'Université de Strasbourg. Celui-ci projetait probablement de financer l'édition moderne d'une des premières monographies sur les eaux de Plombières. La version manuscrite du XIXe siècle est signée, en bas de la première page, "J[osep]h Destrayes". Bel exemplaire [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Observations Connected with Astronomy and Ancient History, Sacred and Profane on the Ruins of Babylon. together with] Observations on the Remains of Ancient Egyptian Grandeur and Superstition as Connected with Those of Assyria: Forming the Appendix to Observations on the Ruins of Babylon

      London: John Murray 1816 & 1818 - London: Sold by John Murray, Printed for the Author. 1816 & 1818, First Edition. Hardcovers. Two Volumes in One. Large Quarto - 29.2cm. [iv] viii, 164, [iv]; and [viii] xvi, 222pp. Recent period sstyle binding in half-brown calf and marbled boards with gilt ruling' spine with five raised bands, gilt titles on brown and green morocco tabs, gilt decorations. Internally clean and well-preserved but with prior ownership stamp in the upper corner on page 1, surface carbon marks on some latter pages, otherwise a clean copy, paper with pleasing acoustical and tactile quality. With four engraved plates in the first section, two in the second as called for. The plates listed: The Supposed Ruins of the Tower of Babel; Ancient Inscription on the Walls of Persepolis, The Great Pagoda of Tanjore; A Mexican Temple to the Sun and Moon, Vara Avatar of India [&] Hermes Anubis of Egypt, and The Ancient Zodiac of Egypt. Thomas Maurice was an assistant librarian at the British Museum. The book started out in the form of a review of the "Memoir on the Ruins of Babylon" (1813) by Claudius James Rich, the East India Company resident at Baghdad, but soon grew in scope. Technically the second section is an Appendix to the first section produced two years earlier, and is often referred to as a volume in its own right Ñ both sections are typically found bound in a single volume despite their being published two years apart. Maurice's particular concern was to establish whether the Egyptians or the Assyrians were the first true astronomers. His personal leaning was that the Assyrians were the first astronomers. In the course of exploring this concept, Maurice drew upon other travelers' accounts, both modern and classical, and created this massive work of comparative religion and mythology, with a central focus on the civilizations of the ancient near East and the Indian subcontinent.

        AN AFFECTING NARRATIVE OF THE CAPTIVITY & SUFFERINGS OF MRS. MARY SMITH, WHO, WITH HER HUSBAND AND THREE DAUGHTERS WERE TAKEN PRISONERS BY THE INDIANS IN AUGUST LAST (1814) AND...WAS FORTUNATELY RESCUED FROM THE MERCILESS HANDS OF SAVAGES BY A DETACHED PARTY OF THE ARMY OF THE BRAVE GENERAL JACKSON, LATE COMMANDING AT NEW- ORLEANS

      Providence: Printed for L. Scott, 1816. Modern three-quarter brown morocco and cloth, spine gilt. Bookplate of Frank Cutter Deering on front pastedown. Text tanned and lightly foxed. Good plus. Mrs. Smith and her family were taken captive by the Chickasaws near the Yazoo in 1814. Her husband was used for tomahawk throwing practice and her three daughters were burned in front of her. She was saved from a similar fate by the raid of a company of Tennessee troops. This captivity tale was first published in Providence in 1815. The narrative was apparently a bestseller for its day, as at least seven editions appeared by 1818, all of which are rare today. The printer, Scott, produced several twenty-four-page and thirty-two-page editions with a new woodcut frontispiece and variant titlepages; some include the text about the murder of thirty people after Mrs. Smith escaped. The present edition was printed after Jackson's defeat of the British at the Battle of New Orleans on Jan. 8, 1815, as reflected in the title. Rare. Not in Ayer. HOWES S638, "b." SABIN 83539.

        [COLLECTION OF EARLY SOUTH CAROLINA STATE LAWS FOR THE YEARS 1783 - 1816]

      Charleston or Columbia, 1816. Small folio or octavo. Modern buckram, gilt leather labels. Ink library stamps on titlepages, some foxing and staining, contemporary ownership inscriptions and occasional manuscript notes, a handful of leaves lacking or in facsimile. Overall, a good set. An excellent collection of rare South Carolina session laws beginning in the early Federal period, running through the War of 1812, and ending in 1815. The imprints date from 1783, 1785-87, 1795-1801, and 1803-16. The acts cover the issues commensurate with a fledgling state in the new American nation: taxation, militia, infrastructure, judicial processes, slavery, law enforcement, schools, and much more. Of particular note here is the 1783 act to incorporate Charlestown under its new name of Charleston after the British evacuation of the city in December 1782. Another noteworthy act involves preserving certain lands for the "Use and Occupation of the Cherokee Indians" (1786). The 1801 ACTS includes a 29pp. contemporary manuscript index. Also includes a MESSAGE FROM THE GOVERNOR (1785) and REPORT OF WAYS & MEANS (1785) in addition to the ACTS. Four of the imprints include the ACTS section only, and do not include the RESOLUTIONS as called-for by Gould & Morgan, with one slightly imperfect duplicate of the first work that includes a second copy of the 1783 act incorporating Charleston. A rare assemblage of early South Carolina law, with OCLC usually recording a single copy, or very few examples, of each imprint. Any Charleston imprints from the Evans period are rare, and several examples are present here. It is a collection that would be practically impossible to put together on an individual basis. More details on the contents of the imprints are available by request. The Gould & Morgan citations are in bound order.

      Paris: 1816, 1816. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Augustin-Jean Fresnel's (1788-1827) first published paper on light. In it he repeated with more precision the diffraction experiment first performed by Thomas Young, thus supporting the wave theory of light. He also provided the basis for determining the wavelength of light by establishing the algebraic relationship between the wavelength and the spacing of diffraction fringes and made the first tentative speculation about the transverse nature of light waves.  Also contains André Ampère's "D'une Classification naturelle pour les Corps simples" (Annales de Chimie et de Physique 1 pp. 295-308, 1816); "Suite de l'Essai d'une Classification naturelle pour les Corps simples" (Volume I, pp. 373-394, 1816); and  "Suite d'une Classification naturelle pour les Corps simples" (Volume II, pp. 5-32 & 105-125, 1816). 452, 440, 448 pp. 8vo.

      Paris: 1816, 1816. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. André Ampère (1775-1836) classified the 48 known elements into three major families (gaxolytes, leucolytes and chriocolytes) that he further divided into 15 "genres," based on "analogies" between the elements, chemical properties that seemed related to one another. He did this in three papers in this multi-volume set:    Also contains Augustin Fresnel's "Mémoire sur la diffraction de la lumière, où l'on examine particulièrement le phénomènes des franges colorées que présentent les ombres des corp éclaireés par un point lumineux" by Augustin Fresnel (Volume I, pp. 239-281, 1816) and André Ampère's "D'une Classification naturelle pour les Corps simples" (Annales de Chimie et de Physique 1 pp. 295-308, 1816); "Suite de l'Essai d'une Classification naturelle pour les Corps simples" (Volume I, pp. 373-394, 1816); and  "Suite d'une Classification naturelle pour les Corps simples" (Volume II, pp. 5-32 & 108-125, 1816). 452, 440, 448 pp. 8vo.

Expertly bound to style in blue morocco-backed marbled paper covered boards, bound by Altelier Laurenchet, flat spines tooled in gilt, red morocco lettering pieces Provenance: Pierre Lapie (secretarial presentation inscription by Freycinet on front blank in the Navigation atlas) The rare complete official narrative and hydrography of the Baudin-Freycinet Expedition: with a presentation inscription to the geographer to the King of France. The expedition was sent out by the French government in 1800 with orders to complete the cartographic survey of the Australian coast. Commanded by Nicolas Baudin, the expedition left France in 1800 and sailed via Mauritius to the Australian coast in the region of Cape Leeuwin, arriving in May 1801. Peron sailed as naturalist on the expedition and Freycinet as cartographer. The vessels, Geographe and Naturaliste, sailed north from Cape Leeuwin. The expedition surveyed the coast and made observations on the natural history and inhabitants, until they crossed to Timor. After three months the two ships set out for Tasmania, the party continuing to make detailed surveys, and went on to Sydney. They then undertook a complete survey of the southern coast and an examination of the northern coast before returning to Mauritius where, near the end of 1803, Baudin died. It was a celebrated voyage which brought back to France the most important collection of natural history specimens in the history of the French Museum, as well as a wealth of geographical and other information. The narrative of the expedition was begun by Peron, and completed by Freycinet after Peron's death. A tacit agreement between Peron and Freycinet, both of whom disliked Baudin, kept the commander's name mostly absent from the present official account of the expedition. Flinders completed his survey of the Australian coast before Baudin, but his imprisonment by the French in Mauritius for seven years resulted in the French exploration account being published first. Consequently, the Baudin-Freycinet narrative includes the first complete and fully detailed map of the Australian continent. It is justly one of the most famous depictions of Australia ever produced, with virtually the entire southern coast labeled "Terre Napolean," indicating possible French colonial ambitions. The Atlas Historique contains a group of beautiful color plates, mostly of natural history specimens, many of which depict what the French saw during their important visit to Tasmania. The Baudin-Freycinet narrative is not always found complete, as the navigational text and atlas were issued on different dates and sold separately from the narrative (i.e Historique). The specialized nature of the navigational section, including the text which constitutes a pilot to the Australian coast, meant that it was not often added to copies of the narrative section. However, as first full atlas of the Australian coastline, its cartographical contribution is of extraordinary value. The present set with a secretarial presentation inscription by Freycinet to Pierre Lapie, the first geographer to the King of France and Chief of the Topographic section of the War Office. Maps of Australia and the region by Lapie, based on those by Freycinet, would appear in editions of Malte-Brun's atlas in the years following the publication of the present work.

        Emma:

      London: for John Murray,, 1816. A Novel. In three volumes. By the Author of "Pride and Prejudice," &c. &c. 3 volumes, duodecimo (177 × 102 mm). Early nineteenth-century half calf, marbled boards, red sprinkled edges. Half-titles discarded by the binder, as usual. Early ownership inscription shaved by the binder's knife at the head of vol. 3 title. Somewhat worn at extremities, front joint of vol. 1 starting, some slight offsetting and browning, still a very good copy. First edition of the last completed of Jane Austen's novels, fully displaying her mastery of free indirect speech, an innovation in the English novel. She had fallen out with Egerton over publication of Mansfield Park and transferred to Murray, who published the second edition of that book and the first edition of Emma on the same terms: each was published at the author's expense, with profits to the author after payment of a 10 per cent commission to the publisher. In keeping with Murray's stated views on edition sizes, 2,000 copies were printed. Emma is the only one of Jane Austen's novels to bear a dedication, unwillingly made, to the Prince Regent, the arrangement of which generated a richly comic correspondence between the author and the Prince Regent's librarian.

        [CONSECUTIVE RUN OF THE FIRST FOURTEEN SESSION LAWS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF OHIO, 1803 - 1816]

      Chillicothe & Zanesville, 1816. Uniform 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Modest shelf wear, a few labels lacking. Small ink library stamps and embossed blind-stamps on titlepages, occasional ink ownership inscriptions on titlepages. Some toning and scattered foxing, occasional tanning, some contemporary ink marginalia, a handful of leaves trimmed close, a few small tape repairs or reinforcements. Overall, a good set. A strong run of the laws of the State of Ohio from the first session of the General Assembly to the fourteenth of 1816, covering the crucial years of 1812-15 when Ohio was the Western theatre of the War of 1812. The impact of the war can be seen right away in the 1812 session laws; the very first act provides "blankets for the Ohio militia, now in the service of the United States." Later in this session the assembly passed an act "for the encouragement of Volunteers in the North Western Army of the United States" after the "lamentable disaster, which has happened to that part of the North Western Army of the United States, lately under the command of Gen. James Winchester." The Army of the Northwest was a unit of the American army formed at the outset of the War of 1812 and charged with control of the state of Ohio, Indiana Territory, Michigan Territory, and Illinois Territory. The "lamentable disaster" refers to the Battle of Frenchtown, fought near the River Raisin in Monroe, Michigan, which was a massive loss for the American army in the War of 1812. The day after the battle ended British troops and Native Americans massacred wounded soldiers in what became known as the River Raisin Massacre, additionally killing many more troops in a subsequent forced march to Fort Malden. Frenchtown resulted in more casualties than any other battle during the War of 1812, and it became a rallying cry for the American army. In addition to these acts, the 1812 laws include several resolutions related to war activities within the state, including resolutions authorizing the governor to procure arms, one regarding "the conduct of the corps of volunteers from this state, during and previous to the late campaign, under the command of general Hull," and a resolution requesting that the services of the Ohio militia be paid by the United States. The resolution regarding Gen. Hull refers to another disastrous event for the American effort earlier in the war, the Siege of Detroit, where the American army surrendered Fort Detroit to the British in August 1812. Here the resolution commends the Ohio corps of volunteers "for the patriotism, bravery and general good conduct, which they evinced, during their late arduous and disastrous expedition." A couple of years later the assembly passed a resolution to thank Andrew Jackson, his officers, and his men, for their "gallant defence of New Orleans," the decisive battle of the war. Such a consecutive run of session laws for Ohio is unprecedented in the market, with only an occasional single volume coming up for sale. Most of the session laws were printed by various printers in Chillicothe, but the ninth and tenth General Assemblies were held at, and the session laws printed in, Zanesville. All are rare. A marvelous run of early Ohio state laws.

        An die Hoffnung

      1816 - BEETHOVEN, Ludwig van. An die Hoffnung aus Tiedge’s Urania… 94tes Werk. Wien: S. A. Steiner, [1816]. Oblong folio, disbound; pp. 10, (2). $4700.First edition of Beethoven’s second setting of this poem by Tiedge, fully engraved.Beethoven twice set Tiege’s “An die Hoffnung” to music-once in 1805 (op. 32) in a much shorter version without the opening strophes, and again in 1813-14. “Obtaining the right rhythm for the words was always a matter of major concern for him; his preliminary sketches for songs often show him experimenting with many different rhythms for the first phase, while his latest alterations to the final version sometimes include minor improvements to the rhythm of the voice part. His concern for verbal accentuation sometimes led to unusual results, a remarkable example being the beginning of his second setting of An die Hoffnung (op. 94), where the music borders on declamatory recitative as well as being very chromatic and forward-looking harmonically” (Cooper, 263). “At certain periods of his life, Beethoven’s religious impulses were rather in the background, and there is more than a hint of agnosticism in his 1813-14 setting of An die Hoffnung (op. 94), which begins ‘Ob ein Gott sei?’ (‘Is there a God?’)-a passage omitted in his 1805 setting of the song” (Cooper, Beethoven Companion, 147). With integral blank at end. Kinsky-Hahn, 265-66. Faint foxing to title, text exceptionally clean. A wonderful copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

        SOME OF THE ACTS OF THE TERRITORY OF MICHIGAN, WITH THE TITLES AND A DIGEST OF ALL THE ACTS OF THE SAID TERRITORY, NOW IN FORCE. MARCH 29th, 1816

      Detroit, 1816. Small quarto. Slightly later three-quarter sheep and marbled boards, gilt leather label. Leather worn. Library ink stamps on titlepage and internal pages. Title struck through with a single line in a contemporary hand, with additional title words added in the same hand. Some light toning and soiling. Very good. In an orange cloth clamshell box. An early Michigan imprint, from the famed press of press of Father Richard. This was a major production, and contains the so-called Cass Code, superseding the Woodward Code of 1801. "The preceding compilation contains the titles, a digest or a copy of all the acts of the Territory of Michigan, which can now be ascertained to be in force. ... Where the contents of the law are sufficiently indicated by the title, or where the objects are not of comparative general importance, the title only has been printed. Those laws have been digested, whose structure admitted it, and whose practical operation upon the community would not be affected by the process." Father Richard's press was the first generally effective press in the Detroit area and the upper Midwest. A press had been set up in Detroit in 1796, but its production was limited to one known sixteen-page pamphlet and some blank forms. Father Richard established his press for the production chiefly of textbooks, religious items, and a few odd political items, and employed several different pressmen, including James M. Miller, A. Coxshaw, and Mettez, from 1809 through 1816. All of Father Richard's pioneer imprints are of considerable rarity.

        [Melon] Scarlet Flesh Rock

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1816. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In good condition. Image size: 16 x 12 3/4 inches. A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece: 'Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits'. George Brookshaw's 'Pomona Britannica' is the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent work as a true work of art. As a retired cabinetmaker, Brookshaw produced his seminal botanical study late in his career, at first publishing it in parts and then as a complete edition in 1812. The fact that this outstanding work took ten years to complete is evident in the quality of its images and the care with which Brookshaw executed each individual picture. 'Pomona Britannica' was produced as a visual record of the best available varieties of fruit in an attempt to encourage gardeners to experiment with growing fruit, and illustrates examples found in the Royal gardens at Hampton Court, Kensington Gardens, and the private gardens of the Prince of Wales in Blackheath. 'Pomona Britannica' differs from other botanical works in its dark aquatinted backgrounds and its stylized compositions. By using aquatint to create a contrasting background, Brookshaw manages to produce a truly dramatic effect. His use of stylized composition distinguishes his pictures from the dry scientific illustrations found in other botanical studies and creates an exceptionally beautiful visual experience. 'Pomona Britannica' is not only a didactic study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist's talent and ingenuity. Cf. Dunthorne 50; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p. 81; cf. Nissen BBI 244; cf. Sandra Raphael An Oak Spring Pomona 40a.

        Autograph letter signed ("Hoffmann").

      Berlin, 21. VII. 1816. - 8vo. 1 p. To his publisher Georg Reimer, about his tale "Das Sanktus", apologizing for the delay in sending this to him, stating that his friend Hitzig can testify to the fact that in the last three months an unusual mass of time-consuming work has made it impossible for him to think about anything else ("[.] Freund Hitzig kann es bezeugen, wie seit drey Monathen ein ungewöhnlicher Andrang von zeitraubender [.] Arbeit es mir als unmöglich gemacht hat, an etwas anderes zu denken [.]"). Hoffmann's famous tale "Das Sanctus" was published in the first volume of "Nachstücke" (1816). - With two manuscript annotations to verso, one possibly by the recipient. Overall browning with some damp-staining affecting text.

        Quelques rapports de Frédéric Guillaume III Roi de Prusse et de Buonaparte avec A. H. Dampmartin.

      Paris 1816 - In-8 de (4)-607 pp., couvertes d'une écriture moyenne et lisible (environ 20 lignes par page), texte réglé, maroquin cerise à long grain, dos à nerfs orné de filets, pointillés, guirlandes et fleurons dorés, encadrement de simple filet et guirlande dorés sur les plats, tortillon doré sur les coupes, tranches dorées, dentelle intérieure (Thouvenin). Manuscrit inédit sur la Prusse (1797) et la France (1813). Le titre de ce manuscrit de Dampmartin, qui forme comme une section de ses Mémoires, distribués en plusieurs titres, est relativement trompeur si l'on pense que l'auteur a entretenu des relations suivies avec les deux Souverains cités : si en effet, réfugié à Berlin pendant sa période d'émigration, Dampmartin se vit confier le 1er avril 1797 l'éducation d'un des fils que Frédéric-Guillaume II avait eu de sa maîtresse la fameuse comtesse de Lichtenau (Wilhelmine Enke, 1753-1820), ses contacts avec l'héritier légitime du trône en furent, par le fait même, considérablement restreints ; quant à Napoléon, selon le rapport même de Dampmartin dans son Avertissement, il ne put jamais se déprendre à son égard d'une forte méfiance qui tenait essentiellement à la qualité d'ancien émigré de Dampmartin, et, de fait, la carrière subalterne et peu valorisante qu'il mena sous l'Empire, vient a posteriori confirmer la faible opinion du souverain. Il reste donc que, sous ce titre assez trompeur, ont été réunis plusieurs fragments intéressants qui concernent soit la Prusse des héritiers du Grand Frédéric, soit l'attitude de Napoléon pendant l'année cruciale 1813 : Dans l'intimité du Roi de Prusse. I. Sur la Prusse, l'on trouvera successivement : 1) Les morceaux retranchés par la censure de l'ouvrage de Dampmartin intitulé "Quelques traits de la vie privée de Frédéric-Guillaume II", paru en 1811 et pour lequel on peut créditer l'auteur de renseignements de première main (pp. 11-60). 2) Un passage sur Frédéric-Guillaume II retiré par la même censure de l'ouvrage de Dieudonné Thiébault ("Souvenirs de vingt ans"), dont Dampmartin procura la troisième édition en 1813 (pp. 61-65). 3) Une longue lettre adressée à une Rosalie Bouchon d'Uzès, à laquelle Dampmartin avait demandé de relire son manuscrit sur Frédéric-Guillaume II : elle contient des anecdotes et détails complémentaires pour cet ouvrage (pp. 66-228). Au service de Napoléon en 1813. II. Mais la partie la plus intéressante (et la plus longue) concerne la mission que Napoléon, partant le 15 avril 1813 de Saint-Cloud pour entrer en campagne, lui avait confiée par l'intermédiaire de Méneval : elle consistait à envoyer chaque jour un bulletin de notes sur l'esprit et les dispositions de la société parisienne, les nouvelles littéraires et surtout les premières représentations théâtrales (la surveillance de la scène dramatique, encore très sensible aux oscillations politiques et sociales, était primordiale en temps de crise). Dans sa présentation, Dampmartin assure avoir résisté jusqu'au bout à cette besogne d'"espionage" et n'avoir cédé qu'aux ordres formels de Méneval (il fallait bien, il écrivait sous la Restauration). Il n'empêche qu'il s'exécuta, et qu'il livre ensuite le texte des bulletins quotidiens, du moins ceux qui auraient survécu à une maladresse de son valet : commençant par celui du 6 juillet 1813, il donne les notes quasi quotidiennes jusqu'à celle du 8 novembre suivant, ce qui fait beaucoup pour quelques feuillets prétendûment arrachés aux flammes (pp. 252-579). Le 9 novembre 1813, le retour de Napoléon à Saint-Cloud, après la catastrophique campagne de Saxe, rendait inutile la continuation de la correspondance, mais l'auteur, flatté le lendemain par un gracieux accueil de cour de la part du Souverain, en profita pour solliciter, appuyé de Méneval, la Légion d'Honneur. Restent ces compte-rendus littéraires et théâtraux sur presque une demi-année, intéressant témoignages du régime de surveillance propre à l'Empire, et qui ne semblent pas avoir été conservés par ailleurs.

        MAXVORSTADT, MÜNCHEN: MANUSKRIPTPLAN DER SCHÖNFELD STRASSE MIT DEM HAUS DES GENERALS UND ERSTEN BAYERISCHEN KRIEGSMINISTER JOHANN NEPOMUK GRAF VON TRIVA.

      - Situationsplan der Bebauung zwischen der Schwabinger Chaussee und dem Englischen Garten, vom Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts, kurz vor dem Ausbau der Ludwigstraße durch Leo von Klenze und Friedrich Gärtner zur Prachtstraße und Anbindung der nördlich gelegenen Maxvorstadt (1816-27). Der aquarellierte Manuskriptplan zeigt Grundstücke zwischen der alten Schwabinger Chaussee und dem Englischen Garten, heute der Ludwigstrasse, Schönfeld Strasse, Hahnstrasse und Von-der-Tann-Strasse, nord vom Hofgarten. Aufnehmer und Zeichner des Plans war der Steuerzentralbaumeisters und Ingenieur-Hauptmann Max Lebschée (gestorben 1816, Signatur rechts unten), eines Onkels väterlicherseits des Münchner Architektur- und Landschaftsmalers Carl August Lebschée. Im Zentrum ist das neue Wohnhaus des Generals und ersten bayerischen Kriegsministers (ab 1814) Johann Nepomuk Graf von Triva (1755-1827, „Wohnhaus des Herrn Generalen von Triva"). Eingezeichnet sind auch der geometrisch angelegte Garten des Anwesens sowie die private Zufahrt von der „Chaussee" (Ludwigstrasse) und zwei kleinere Zufahrten von dem Norden und Süden. Durch die Nennung Trivas wird eine annähernde Datierung des Plans möglich, der zwischen 1811, dem Jahr der Beförderung Trivas zum General der Atellerie (1. Januar 1811), und 1816, dem Todesjahr Lebschées und dem Beginn des Ausbaus der Ludwigstraße, entstanden sein muss. Das Bayerische Kriegsministerium wurde am 27. März 1808 von König Maximilian I. als Ministerium für das Kriegswesen gegründet, Kriegsminister war bis 1814 der König selbst. Die Manuskriptkarte wurde vermutlich als eine Katasterkarte in der Zeit der Erbauung des Hauses Trivas gemacht. Heute befindet sich im Haus Trivas das Restaurant Halali. Die Nord- und Südzufahrt wurden erweitert in die Hahnstrasse.
